Lahela Ocean Adventures Has it All!
When you get to Kauai, you may be looking for deep sea fishing adventures aboard a sport fishing boat or an exciting cruise to watch the humpback whales as they migrate to the island’s warm ocean waters. Or, perhaps you simply want to snorkel and sightsee along Kauai’s north shore.
In addition to our private and shared deep sea fishing charters, you can join us on board the 34-foot Lahela sport fishing boat for any number of specialty boat trips — from Napali Coast cruises to whale watching tours.
Discover Light Tackle Fishing at Night off Niihau Island
Here’s a fishing trip unlike any other you’ll experience on Kauai. Book a Kaula Rock & Niihau Private Night Fishing Trip and enjoy:
1 full day of deep sea fishing off of Kaula Rock, off Kauai.
1 peaceful night of anchored light tackle fishing at Niihau.
The Lahela 34-foot sport fishing boat departs at 10:00 PM from Nawiliwili Small Boat Harbor. You arrive at your destination (Kaula Rock) around 7:00 AM the next morning where you’ll prepare for a fun filled day of deep sea fishing. Get ready for an exciting adventure as many varieties of big game fish — from marlin to sharks — are in abundance at Kaula Rock. And, the bottom fishing is superb.
That night you’ll prepare for a peaceful evening of anchored light tackle fishing — Lahela Ocean Adventure’s specialty. Using the finest equipment available (Shimano tackle, Van Staal Reels, top of the line spinning reels), you’ll enjoy sportfishing for more than 50 different species of reef fish — from sharks and grey snapper (uku) to blue line snapper and squirrel fish.
Private Trip: Call for current rates. for 1-4 passengers (plus 4.17% Hawaii state tax and 2% Harbor tax). All meals are included.
We are certified to carry up to 14 passengers. However, for the best overnight experience, we recommend 1-4 passengers. If your party is larger than 4 people, e-mail us and we’ll provide you with a quote on the cost.
How long is the fishing trip?
Fish are not always concentrated in one place on Kauai. That’s why our captains recommend a full 8-hour day charter off Kauai’s shores. This way, with high speed trolling, you cover more area in less time, which allows you to fish for all kinds of fish like tuna, mahi mahi, and wahoo. And, it can also trigger an aggressive response from a trophy marlin should a hungry one be in the area. Half-day, 4-hour charters are also available.
Should I take a private or shared fishing charter?
Private Charter: You and your party charter the LAHELA sport fishing boat for your own pleasure. No additional anglers or strangers are on board with you. This is the preferred way to fish on Kauai as you are assured that any fish that hooks up is yours to reel in. Click here for private charter rates.
Shared Charters: You share your fishing day with other anglers on board the LAHELA. Each angler is assigned 1 rod for the day. Rods are rotated equally among each of you, switching at 2, 3, and 4-hour intervals depending on the length of your Kauai fishing trip. Click here for shared charter rates.
What’s your catch policy?
Lahela Ocean Adventures will tag and release billfish upon request. We can arrange to have your trophy catch mounted and shipped to you. See next question for more details.
What should I bring?
Most of all, dress comfortably. Bring a light jacket or sweatshirt, camera, sun visor or hat, towel, and a pair of white rubber sole shoes. Bring lots of sun screen as the sun is extra hot on Kauai’s waters. Your chances of getting burned are far greater than anywhere else so please take proper precautions to protect yourself. Bring water and anything you wish to snack on. If you’d like to bring beer, it can NOT be in glass bottles.
What’s your cancellation policy?
All fishing, snorkeling and whale watching trips are scheduled according to Kauai’s weather conditions. Should we cancel your trip due to bad weather, you won’t be charged any cancellation fees. Should you cancel your trip less than 14 days before departure (or fail to show up for your trip), your credit card will be charged the full amount as the cost of your charter is non-refundable at that time.
